Pixeled Event Production selects ChamSys control for Enter Shikari

Lighting Designer, Lucy Harrison of Pixeled Event Production relies on ChamSys to help control the visuals for the band’s largest London show to date…

Having started working for Enter Shikari as an SFX Operator in 2018, Lucy Harrison moved up the ranks, taking on the role of Lighting Designer. Having lit the band since 2022, she was more than prepared for the band’s A Kiss For The Whole World Tour. The Director of Pixeled Event Production had been a fan of the band for many years and this was very much a dream scenario for Harrison but not one without pressure, as for this cycle the band took on their largest London headline to date at the OVO Arena Wembley. However, despite the risk, the LD took the bold move to radically change her desk choice for this year, opting to move over to the ChamSys MagicQ MQ500M Stadium Console.   

“I always say the band are the definition of dynamic,” commented Harrison. “From beginning to end we have kabuki drops, lasers, video, lighting and confetti but we still try to create this intimate, immersive experience which in an arena is challenging.”

The production also marked the biggest show ever for Pixeled. “We provide most of the visual production in house for the show which means we have a fully customised design,” stated Harrison.
